This is sure to make Sacramento safer for pedestrians, and encourage cycling:
Bicyclists racing along the American River bike trail in Sacramento will soon risk speeding tickets for exceeding the 15 mph speed limit.
Sacramento County has been issuing warnings this month to cyclists caught on a speed detector going 20 to 25 mph.
Soon, they will face a $50 fine for the first offense and $100 for a second citation.
Ranger Sgt. Randy Lewis stood along the bike trail Friday afternoon with an infrared speed detector, calling out speeds to cyclists as they passed.
“Going 23, slow it down!” he shouted.
I am sure police will also start ticketing drivers for going 5 mph over the limit on city streets…
